Change starts with individuals but requires joint action!

The Danida Fellows Network brings together professionals from public authorities, research and learning institutions, the private sector and civil society, who work to solve development challenges as part of Danida funded development collaboration. All participants in the Network hold different pieces of the puzzle of making sustainable development and the achievement of the sustainable development goals a reality.

The Network supports members as they share knowledge, build new partnerships and work to solve the challenges facing the world today.
